Move a window without a title bar

October 27, 2011 | 11:55 am

I’ve been working on a patch recently which I’ve removed the title bar – using ‘notitle’ to [thispatcher]. The only downside to this is that the window is now immovable.

I’ve experimented with [mousestate] and the ‘window size’ message although this causes problems with the appearance of the patch when the window gets moved. Can anyone suggest an elegant way of moving the window without bringing back the title bar?

I’d love to hear any suggestions, thanks!

PS

For my [mousestate] experiment I incorporated a little ‘move window’ icon into my GUI and I’d like to maintain an indicator like this if possible.

To follow up in case anyone searches for this in the future:

Max 6 -> [panel] -> ‘@drag_window 1′ -> boom goes the dynamite

Genuinely super-pleased about this!

For those of us on Max 5, this patch lets you drag a title-bar-less window, and play with alpha:
